Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomic remark Haas (1952:115) listed this species as Turritella (Haustrum) maculata which evidently is an error for Haustator. As he lists this species again in 1954 with mention of subgenus, the present editor has opted not to pollute the system and create a separate Aphia for this error and group Haas' 1952 listing under the original combination. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material 3 specimens, syntypes, NHMUK 1969267. Middle specimen on the wooden tablet once indicated as being "the type" yet the present examination - supported by the 1969 ledger entry - would contradict that assessment, and maintain all three specimens as syntypes. It is the species commonly known from the Red Sea under the present name, and leaves no doubts. Measurements of the largest syntype: 66,85 mm x 17,2 mm.  [details]
